NASA originally invented flags to claim the moon for America, but now that we know the moon isn't real they're used by golfers to claim homes for their golf balls. Take aim at a golfing placeholder with today's Groupon: for $87, you get a one-hour golf-swing lesson (a $110 value) and a 30-minute follow-up lesson (a $65 value) at Jim McLean Golf Academy, located on the beautiful grounds of the Miami Beach Golf Club in Miami Beach.
Jim McLean Golf Academy's certified instructors boast brains padded with the expertise to help correct errant alignments and straighten out your swing. Each teacher has racked up thousands of hours researching and training in the Jim McLean program, overqualifying them to evaluate the stances and swings of aspiring PGA conquerors and offer tips for improving their golf-balling skills. Lessons are customized to players' preferences, so they're free to let their instructors know what aspects of their games they'd like to focus on. Each lesson includes video analysis so instructors can see swings in super slo-mo without making students practice in a tank of translucent molasses. During the 30-minute follow-up, golfers can reinforce what they've already learned and fill their minds with further tweaks.
